Of course, Monday started yesterday when I stepped into the hallway and the carpet went squish. Like any pet owner, I hesitantly checked to see why my bare foot was now wet and the carpet was making such icky sounds when I walked on it. Relief because there were no “gifts” left for me — not unheard of with two cats and a dog. But then memory of the last time the carpet went squish in that same area flooded — hah! — back and panic began to set in.
There are joys to homeownership but there are downfalls as well. Hot water heater leaks being one of the downfalls. The current hot water heater is 9 years, 2 weeks old. Yes, I looked it up. The actual heater doesn’t look to be leaking but the sheetrock on one side is wet, started about 5 feet up and spreading downward. So, my guess is we have a leak in the line going into the heater.
Sometime between now and noon, I’ll find out for sure. Once I have — and once I have recovered from learning how much that repair will cost — I’ll be back with a real blog post. In the meantime, you guys have a safe Monday morning.
